A Healthy Holiday Treat

No Comments »

Trying to watch yourself around the sweets this holiday season? 

A little sweet, a little sour, but A LOT of yummy goodness! This yummy but not so bad for you treat will leave you wanting more, Sweet and Sour Chocolate Bark.

The competition with holidays treats is often found in the presentation of them. Yes, of course they have to taste good, but the way they look on the platter is the real selling item. Sweet and Sour Bark is not only going to be one of the healthier items on the platter, but also looks good on display!

The mix-ins…For starters, dark chocolate is always better for you than milk chocolate. Then you get a little protein from your crunchy almonds, a little chewy from your dried cherries, and of course, the mouth watering salty and chocolate combo.

Get your family and friends hooked on this holiday treat so no one has to feel guilty or tempted! Just think, you wont be feeling your post holiday weight in training as much.

We asked a couple of our Tri-California Ambassadors to give us some insight on their off season goals.
